We heard about this "Movie Night" idea a couple of weeks back, and now it looks like it'll be a reality.
Today the folks down at Groupon announced they are "presenting" Movie Night at Wrigley Field on Saturday, October 1 at 5:30pm. Usually Groupon gives you a discount to things, but in this case I guess they just are gonna flash their name so you think it is cheaper.
As far as we can recall, this will be the first such event at the Friendly Confines, but it's only the latest in a long line of ways the Ricketts and his team of marketers have figured out how to milk Wrigley Field.
Tickets are $10 for Bleachers, $25 to bring a blanket and sit on the field, or $75 to be a "VIP", sit closer on the field and get free food and drinks for a couple of hours.
They're gonna set up three 30-foot screens along the infield to show the 25 year old movie, and get this: "guests arriving before 7pm can take part in a historic attempt to top the world record for Most People Singing in the Round. A stadium-wide rendition of "Danke Schoen" pits left and right field against each other in aural combat, with all participants counted toward the immoral record by official cleverly disguised as counting Muppets."
